St. Apollinaris Mission

St. Apollinaris is a welcoming Catholic Christian Community united by faith in God, nourished by Jesus through both the Word and the Eucharist and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

We invite you to join us in meeting the spiritual, educational, and physical needs of our growing parish family and community through prayer, faith formation, evangelization, stewardship, hospitality, and social justice.

Religious Education

”Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them…” Matthew 19:14

As your child ages, his/her understanding of our faith will grow and mature with continued faith formation. Our Catholic faith has so much to offer that, with yearly education in their faith, your child will grow in their love and understanding of our loving God with each year. St. Apollinaris has much to offer our children.
